The east face of Mt. Nevermore, showing (1) Call of the Raven (VI 5.9 A2+, 760m, Houston-Workman-Workman, 1998). (2) Perfect Storm (VI 5.11d A1, 1000m, Lampard-McAleese-Turner, 2004). The east face of Mt. Nevermore can only be seen in its entirety from the west face of Middle Triple Peak. Neither the 2004 nor the 1998 team knew there were two distinct summits to the mountain. The climber in the foreground is Kitty Calhoun, on the first ascent of Ride the Lightning (VI 5.10 A4 WI3, 4,000', Calhoun-Gerberding-Osman-Smith, 1997) on the west face of Middle Triple Peak.

Thanks hoobie and Reeotch, you guys are mind-readers! I still need a good pic of the East Face. It's a real shame Andy Embick is no longer with us.

Crickets . . . Guess gossip is more interesting.

For big wall FA potential it is hard to beat the Kichatnas.

I'm definitely keen for a route on Mt. Nevermore.

It's just dreamy . . .

,
how these Overly coddled,'given it on a silver platter', undeserving, man-scaped, young punks deserve All this information is beyond my grasp.(Edited after some consideration, )

They will find this, and use it I hope.

I am climbing in the spires just looking right now!!

I made my choices and stand by them,

but If iI could have the time and money I spent in my youth chasing Live Dead
and other semi pro transient life styles,

Back ...

I would be Gratefully Fred ... Dead. . . Greet fooley dead.

Sitting here in the dust bin of age I morn that, that is not how the broom of history swept me.

great shares by men who have the climbers soul
that I share
thanx for all of the posts so far . . .

If I had had this much stoke and information when I was younger. . .
I would be Grateful Fred,... funny, Dead... Grateful dead
Man this auto correct and Avery's threads. . .
Now it must be said that I made choices.
If I had all the money and time that I spent Following that party around, Back ...

But that is not how the broom of history swept
so now in the dust bin of age I strive to climb to the rim of the ditch.
I hope I do ten times over before it is the Via Ferrata it can and maybe should be.

My favorite n00b season this was all the rage:
Californians in Alaska,
Royal Robbins,
Turn the page.

Much easier than scanning.

Good morning, DMT
Oops that was a big phooy up I was not venting at or insulting any one,

Least of all you !

Please understand the use of the entire statement, when I opened my wrtten missive with that

derogatory declaration that was directed against youth, it was, and is meant only to preface

the reader as to my frustration that more climbers have still not seen this great thread!

I am sorry that I crossed the line of civil discourse, into the vulgar ranting of a bitter old man.





I am glad but not surprised to see that you found your way here too!
While I can understand your taking offense at my Milktoast comment it was an innocent use of an adjective, mfm , you tried to tell me, hung again by my own pitard,

Dingus, my rants and babble, my Age And Lameness, are my condition.Why pick on the infirm? I have enjoyed everything of yours that I can remember reading. If my words are not to your liking stop reading them!
I joined the Soviet Republic of Super Topo After the great purges had ceased,
out of need and wanting to bring some thing new to this clusterphuk!

Give me some slack, slack. . .please
Slack!
SLACK!!
SLACK!!

Lots of good and worthy history in this neck of the glaciers...

Nothing about Kichatna Spire proper but one of my favorite Alaska accounts.

And another classic account of the Bridwell-Embick route.
